Fall? Where?

Pumpkin Spice Latte all around, long sleeves and corduroy in all the stores, and that gross smell of cinnamon brooms and pine cones in all the craft stores means fall is near right.  Could have fooled me.  It's still hot as anything here in South Florida.  I'm anxiously awaiting that slightly cooler breeze, days spent at the zoo and pic-nics under the tree just outside our courtyard.

In other news, this past week has really kicked my butt.  ALL 4 of the kids were sick with up to nearly 104 fevers.  There's Abby who asked to snuggle non-stop, Zoey who pretty much sleeps the majority of the time she's sick, but when she's up she wants to snuggle, Cherry's who is just a complete screaming, crying mess and Jasper who even when healthy never wants to be put down, so when sick he wants to be stuck to me like glue.  It was a long hard week, and just when I thought it was over, the fevers all broke and they were playing and eating almost like normal, then came the vomit and coughing and runny noses.  It's only 9am Monday morning and this week already looks like it will be a repeat of last week.  I feel so bad for my babies.  The logistics of having 4 very young kids have really hit me this past week.  I feel like I haven't been able to give any of them the proper attention for how they've felt, and I especially feel like I haven't been able to give my self the proper down time to deal with them.  I'm beat, all I want is to drown myself in cake and ice cream because tomorrow is my birthday!!!

On the up side, I've started creating the kids Halloween costumes and I'm really excited about how they're turning out.  I'll post some sneak peaks soon.

  1. Definitely no sign of fall here, either, it's still up over 100 degrees every day. :P But at least it's starting to drop below 90 at night!

    Poor kids, and poor you! I hope everyone feels better soon and you get a break on your birthday.
